Sip and Savor Fall with these Drinks Using Locally Made Silo Liquor
Do you always order or make yourself the same drink? Looking to mix it up a bit but don't want to spend all that time searching for recipes that might taste good?
I know I do! I never what to order for a drink. My standby is a nuts and berries, which tastes like a raspberry milkshake. I love it, but I also like to try new things.
Silo comes to save the day!
Try these Drinks Recipes made with Local Liquor.
Cozy in a Glass
Maple, Chocolate, Chambord. Oh my. Decadent and cozy in a glass.
Sipping next to the woodstove, fireplace, or out on the deck with a blanket wrapped around you, just taking in fall.
You could be playing a game, watching the game, catching the latest on Netflix, or diving into the next chapter of a book while you sip on something delicious.
I love their Cocao Vodka, so I can only imagine how wonderful these concoctions would be.
Alcohol Made with Locally Sourced Ingredients
I love how Silo really takes pride in supporting the local community by using locally sourced ingredients when they can in their product.
This is true to their Maple Rye Single Malt Whiskey, which was made with locally grown barley. It was malted and smoked with Vermont Applewood.
Currently they are working on a hard cider with apples from Moore's Orchard in Pomfret that was a big hit.
They also partner with Harpoon and Blake Hill to blend their products as well.
You can read more about their process, facility, and products on my article featuring Silo where I spoke with owner, Anne Marie Delaney, and she gave me the tour and inside scoop on the company.
2 oz SILO Maple Whiskey
Bitters orange wheel & cherry
Splash of club soda
In an Old Fashioned glass, muddle the bitters, orange wheel, cherry and a splash of soda. Remove the orange rind, add the bourbon and fill with ice. Garnish with a fresh orange wheel and cherry.
(What a creative spin orange, cherry, and maple. Sounds tasty.)

(I like cherries so this one sounded really appealing on a crisp day.)

1 oz. Chambord, chilled
1⁄2 oz. Triple secLemonadeDram black bittersBlack raspberry garnish
Shake vodka, triple sec, and lemonade with ice. Strain into a martini glass. Pour the chilled Chambord down the side of the glass so it settles at the bottom. Add a dash of bitters and garnish with black raspberry.
(This sounds lovely.)
Thank you Silo for sharing these great recipes. I'll be heading over to get my cacao vodka.
